A 45-year-old Lawrence man was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital after being involved in a single-car accident on Interstate 70 Saturday morning.

Just before 4 a.m., a 2006 Dodge Durango driven by Asrie Turner, of Lawrence, swerved to miss a deer about two and a half miles west of Kansas Highway 7 on I-70, according to a Kansas Turnpike Authority accident report. The sport utility vehicle then struck a barrier wall, the report said.

Turner was transported to the hospital, where he was treated for his injuries and released.

"If you see a deer in front of you, brake firmly, don't swerve, stay in your lane and bring your vehicle to a controlled stop. It is better to hit the deer than to swerve and lose control of your vehicle and risk rolling over or hitting a tree or oncoming traffic."
